My husband's gran passed away last night. We won't know until Friday how she died, although they think it was a cardiac arrest. She was in her late seventies and in great health, 50+ years married.

The funeral will be next week I think. We'll have to get the day off from work,possibly two since we will have to go to England. Hubby will need a new suit, and I need a new trousers and a top. I have clothes that I could wear but they're old. We went to a funeral in January (friend's sister) and they were ok because I never had my jacket off so they couldn't see my faded top.

I told hubby I'd put his new suit on my credit card since my EF won't be enough.I think it may be enough to get myself a pair of black trousers and a top. I probably will have to add to it. I'm torn about using it though, especially since I'm putting hubby's on to my card. I mean, a new outfit is not an emergency.

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. We just lost my husband's grandmother (and last grandparent) a few weeks ago.

    I'm sorry for your loss as well.

    Though new clothes is not an emergency, it is an unexpected expense, and I totally understand that you need a certain level of dress for a funeral. I have been caught like that, too. Now I have a decent "funeral outfit" for each season so it won't happen again. Nothing worse than having to shop at an already stressful time!
